Marco Cambiaghi

Dep. Neurosciences, Biomedicine and Movement Sciences,University of Verona (Italy) • Marco Cambiaghi is a neurophysiologist with a strong background in in-vivo electrophysiology and behavior in rodent models, serving as an Assistant Professor of Physiology at the University of Verona, where he teaches human physiology and scientific dissemination. Dr. Cambiaghi has a Master degree in Biology (University of Milan) and a PhD in Experimental Medicine (San Raffaele University). During and after his PhD he worked as a visiting scientist at the City University of New York, the Columbia University and the Weizmann Institute of Science. Back to Italy Dr. Cambiaghi spent 6 years at the University of Turin, focusing on the study of emotional memories. In 2018 he obtained the prestigious Bodini Fellowship of the Italian Academy at the Columbia University. Dr. Cambiaghi research is mainly focused on neural plasticity and its modulation through non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (tDCS and rTMS), in the mouse models of brain ischemia, Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis. In addition, Dr. Cambiaghi also has a strong interest in the history of science and in scientific dissemination, fields that he pursues since many years. He cooperates with Italian newspapers (La Stampa and La Provincia) and takes an active part in scientific festivals (e.g. Festival della Luce; Galileo Festival), school and general audience dissemination.

Laura Cancedda

Italian Institute of Technology - IIT, Genova (Italy) • Laura Cancedda received her PhD at the Scuola Normale Superiore, Italy. She did her postdoc at University of Berkeley, California. In 2006, she joined the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) as the principal investigator of the Neurodevelopment and disease lab. She also was also a researcher at the Telethon Dulbecco Institute from 2016 to 2021, and she is an alumna of the FENS KAVLI network of excellence. In 2016, she received a Consolidator grant from the ERC. The Cancedda lab, studies brain development in health and disease, and tries to discover novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders. The lab utilizes a multidisciplinary approach with molecular biology, biochemistry, electrophysiology and behavioral tests.
